After the meeting he pledged to fight for the future of Wembley Stadium.
He said: 'I am encouraged by the talks we've had today. I will fight to keep Wembley the home of national football. Already the area has excellent transport links and there are plans to spend over£70 million to improve local rail and tube stations. I have already made Wembley a priority and it was the biggest beneficiary of my single regeneration budget announcement last year with a£25 million grant.
'Wembley Stadium is a vital part London's economy. It is estimated 20,000 jobs are at risk from the possible abandonment of the scheme. An area with some of the highest unemployment rates in the country surrounds the site. In one nearby ward the unemployment rate is 11 per cent and up to 15 per cent of households in the local area have incomes of less than£15,000 a year. The area needs regeneration and support and Wembley is where the national stadium should stay.'
